Confidence is like a magnet that attracts people to you and helps you get closer to reaching your goals. When you believe in yourself, you send the message that you have the brains, ability, and talent to handle whatever life sends your way. And the truth is, you do!
Think Confident, Be Confident for Teens offers young readers a teen-focused, breakthrough program for eliminating self-doubt and increasing confidence and self-esteem. Marci Fox and Leslie Sokol, faculty members at the Beck Institute for Cognitive Therapy and Research, adapted this cognitive therapy program for teens after the success of their book for adults, Think Confident, Be Confident.
Think Confident, Be Confident for Teens shows teens how to tap into their self-esteem so they can be themselves in every situation, no matter how awkward it may feel or how scary it may sound. The fun exercises and tips in this confidence-coaching workbook will guide young people through past feelings of self-doubt and encourage them to believe in themselves, strengthen their friendships, and meet every challenge head-on.
This book will help teens to:
- Recognize and overcome the self-doubting thoughts that bring them down
- Grow confident thoughts into confident actions
- Enjoy a full social life and attract new friends
- Feel smarter at school and build on their extracurricular talents
This book has been awarded The Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies Self-Help Seal of Merit — an award bestowed on outstanding self-help books that are consistent with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) principles and that incorporate scientifically tested strategies for overcoming mental health difficulties.
Michelle Garcia Winner, the Founder of Social Thinking, says:
“I learned about this book from a colleague who has used it with her teens to help them work through the cognitive behavioral process of recognizing how their thinking impacts their ability to relate to others as well as recognize their own true abilities.”
